VDSL

Hi 

I used to have my router upstairs with a extension cable under carpet but wire broke so moved modem/router back to living room on master socket. 

Now sh2  is currently in living room and I was using tp link power line adapters till about July this year when a engineer didn't recommend them so stopped using them and been using wireless from sh2 to play online but wireless is not ideal. 

What's the best way to have router back upstairs again?. 

My  master 5c socket. 

Thank you

Re: VDSL

I would try the powerline adapters and see what sort of connection you get.  If not good enough then post back

Re: VDSL

Before Julys engineer appointment  I was using powerline adapters and was getting latency variation on battlefield games. 

I had powerline adapters in one side in double socket and tp9980 router in other but prior to julys engineers appointment was using tp link router and TP power line adapters. 

You saying try sh2 and tp power line adapters combo. 

Will I still get latency variation. 

I was thinking putting some cw1308 back down from master 5c a/b terminals ( usually use a/b for VDSL extension).  to upstairs and using a normal bt telephone socket with filter just for fibre connection only.

Re: VDSL

Only by trying the powerline adapters with the SH2 will you know if it works for you or not

you could run Ethernet from data extension terminals in master upstairs to a socket and use filter for broadband

Re: VDSL

No need for Ethernet cabling, CW1308 will do just fine. If you only want it for data, fit an RJ11 socket rather than phone socket, you won't need a filter to adapt it then.

Re: VDSL

I tried several major DIY superstores, and few electrical retailers and no one has a rj11 socket.

Why they so hard to find
